Five years of marriage
July 8th, 2011
Today is our five year wedding anniversary. It’s hard to believe that it’s been five years since it feels like it’s gone by so fast but we’ve also done so much and have both grown so much it also is hard to believe that it’s <em>only</em> been five years.
I’m working on a post with a few lists of my five favorite things about our marriage that I had hoped to put up today but with the move across the Bay, living out of boxes and not having internet connection at home it hasn’t been easy so it’ll have to wait a bit (mainly because I want to read it to him before posting it for the world to see 🙂 ).
Here are some photos from that hot summer day in San Pedro five years ago…
The wedding party–Kevin’s sister, my best friend Erin, my sister the maid-of-honor, me, Kev, Kevin’s brother the best man, Kevin’s best friend, my brother, our nephew the ring bearer, our niece the flower girl
Our ceremony was short and sweet (just the way we like ’em!). We were on a balcony overlooking our guests who were enjoying the beautiful garden below and we were married by one of my dear family friends
Me and my brother, mom and sister
With my new set of parents
With Kevin’s grandma Margie (one of my all-time favorite photos)
Me and my beautiful niece Katelyn
Our first dance
We danced to Chicago’s “Colour my world” and every time I hear it I am taken back to our wedding day. The lyrics are beautiful:“As time goes on I realize Just what you mean To me And now Now that you’re near Promise your love That I’ve waited to share And dreams Of our moments together Colour my world With hope Of loving you”
Here’s a link to the song if you’ve never heard it (it’s short and beautiful!)
I also surprised Kevin with the Hawaiian wedding dance
Nothin’ sweeter than wedding cake!
